I was interested in discussing dragon breeding with you. I came across one of your posts that intrigued me and seems in line with my experience. If you see this and wouldn't mind answering a few questions, could you write me at gsadhara(at)hotmail.com please.
The info you added to the Quest Outpost page had been temporarily removed. There have already been concerns about its accuracy and I agree more data needs gathered for that type of info to be added. Not just more data from one persons account but several accounts and more than 1000 attempts should be gathered to be precise.
I will be happy to help with gathering this data as I have several accounts that I can keep track of.
You are right we need more samples. If I calculate the margin of error for the 2% for the 10 Gold using a sample size of 1021 I get .86%. Meaning that we can be 95% sure that the real value is between 1.14% and 2.86% (1% +/-0.86). For the 2 gold this is 5.8% +/-1.43% and for the 1 gold this is 12% +/-1.99% Probably more accurate than you thought or than most people's gut feeling. But thanks for offering to get more data that would be great because we could lower the margin of error.
The information of what kind of rewards to expect is no doubt correct. I can't image there being a reward I haven't seen after 1021 quests and even if it is there at that rarity level I would consider it irrelevant. I have seen many questions on what can be expected. Perhaps we could leave the information about different rewards on without the percentages. 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000 coins, 1 Gold, 2 Gold and 10 Gold.
Where did you get your information to post these kind of numbers? I send out fire dragons for gold all the time and no way do I come close to getting gold 20% of the time and certainly I don't get anywhere near 44 gold per month.
I got them myself. Wrote down the result every time I did a quest for over 8 months. Sending them out continuously. Obviously it would be better to have 5000 results but 1000 shouldn't be that far off. The longest I've gone without 100 gold is 219 quests but I've had 10 gold after less than 10.
I have data on Food Quests and Gem Quest too but not enough yet to publish
